Prized Amalgam Discussion
8 hours ago
KatsuShibata I see your point, but I haven't yet had a problem with Thing in the Ice Flip even with 18 creatures. I do understand what you mean I'm sure a full-on control deck will flip it more consistently than I will, but it makes for a superb blocker while I dig through my deck and I can still flip it pretty often.
As for the issue regarding Prized Amalgam, yeah I see what you're saying. I've been considering swapping in some other creatures that come back on their own such as Dread Wanderer or Scrapheap Scrounger to make it more consistent when the demigod plan fails.
As for mana, it hasn't really been an issue so far. The deck only runs 1 non-black, non-red source in the form of an Island in case of Blood Moon. All other lands tap for red or black while also tapping for the blue that holds this strategy together.
I am curious what you would suggest to fix the issues you brought up? If you don't mind me asking.

I think you're trying to play two very different games using that many creatures and Thing in the Ice Flip, also consider that there are very few cards that will get your Prized Amalgams out of the graveyard and using Demigod of Revenge means you want to have a mana base that consists almost entirely of black and red, committing your deck a lot more towards those colors.

MTGgoldfish has an article about building a budget mana base that you should check out. One thing it suggests is using painlands, which will always come into play untapped, over checklands, which will come in to play tapped most of the time for you.
Remand isn't good in this deck. Counterspells are best in decks that play at instead speed, and this one doesn't do that. Get a few more creatures and removal spells over that.
Overall, you should use efficient removal over versatile removal. Anguished Unmaking and Oblivion Ring can get rid of anything, but they also cost 3 mana. Better to go with Doom Blade, Go for the Throat or Ultimate Price instead, and keep Anguished Unmaking in the sideboard for when you're up against some deck that has enchantments / artifacts that you need to remove. Better yet, use Fragmentize in the sideboard for that purpose.
Lastly, Prized Amalgam isn't great here. In your deck, 90% of the time it's just a 3/3 for 3 mana, which really isn't good enough for modern. If you want to REALLY take advantage of it, you want to be discarding or milling it and then get it back for free along with something else. If you wanted a deck that was focused on this you'd want 4x Zombie Infestation, 4xGrave Scrabbler, 4xDread Wanderer, and maybe some Haunted Dead and Necromancer's Stockpile along with your amalgams and gravecrawlers. Imagine a game where you cast Zombie Infestation turn 2, discard an Amalgam and a Gravecrawler, and cast the gravecrawler from the graveyard next turn to bring back the amalgam!

Very nice deck, I like it. Some cards that might interest you:Empty the Pits, Wonder, Endless Obedience, Satyr Wayfinder, Prized Amalgam, Splinterfright, Nyx Weaver, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Splendid Reclamation. Always remember to keep the creature count fairly high, so that sidisi can reliably produce Tokens. Also, you should probably try to upgrade your manabase, get some painlands/scrylands/Opulent Palace in there.

@Wendigo4481 No problem, I'm glad you realized I was just explaining things because I was afraid I came off a little "pushy", like I was saying no your card won't work sorta thing. I think the deck is fun to play, it does take some thinking and a little practice to get used to sequencing things and knowing what you need to look for as your milling but overall it's fun. People can get a little salty when you flash in an Elder Deep-Fiend in their upkeep, wipe the board, tap their lands down, and then bring back a Haunted Dead and a couple Prized Amalgam at the end of the turn because they're basically dead the next turn and didn't get to take their last turn but the big eldrazi and the graveyard stuff is what makes the deck fun to play.
